Expert’s Guide to COLORSTEEL® Roofing | Roof Auckland
March 01, 2019 at 1:00 PM
We are dedicated to representing the best products in the roofing industry, and one of those products is undoubtedly COLORSTEEL® roofing. It’s engineered specifically to deal with the New Zealand environment so that you don’t have to repeatedly invest in a new roof. After all, why do it wrong multiple times when you can do it right once?
But what is it about the COLORSTEEL® brand that makes it so ideal? Let’s break it down.
Product Range for Tailored Decisions
Every COLORSTEEL® product was designed for longevity and to prevent wear and tear, but it also has a product range that allows you to choose exactly what you want to protect your home from. We’d recommend using their environmental guide to determine in what kind of zone your house lies, so that you can make the best choice in terms of both longevity and appearance.
The first option has two levels you could go with, one for a moderate environment and one made to tackle a severe environment. True to its name, DRIDEX® has been specifically designed to combat damp conditions. The fleece coating the underside of each panel absorbs excess moisture to keep the inside of your home dry and mould-free.
This silver-finished metal has been coated with a 45 percent zinc and 55 percent aluminium alloy to promote longevity. It is hardy and resistant to corrosion, especially for exposed steel, and will also hold up well against damage caused by deep scratches.
ENDURA® is the evolution of ZINCALUME®, allowing you to choose from the range of COLORSTEEL® colours while maintaining the longevity and corrosion resistance of the previous option. If you’re roofing a home in a moderate to severe environment and want flexibility with its appearance, then this is your ideal choice.
Lastly, we have the product designed to be the most durable and corrosion-resistant roofing panels they have. The MAXX® range is ideal for severe to very severe NZ environments like Rotorua, where geothermal damage is a factor to negate during construction and for years after the fact.
With COLORSTEEL®, there really isn’t a lot of maintenance to speak of, which is what makes it one of our top recommendations for roofing solutions. Most of the products only require a rain wash with a manual wash every six months, and depending on the environment the roof will last for 10 to 15 years. In order to keep your new roof in tip-top shape it is recommended by the company that you clean areas rain cannot reach, such as the undersides of gutters and in sheltered areas.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
And of course, we have one of the things the brand is best known for: it’s unrivalled range of available colours. The DRIDEX®, ENDURA®, and MAXX® products come in a huge myriad of shades so that you’re not restricted when you’re designing your home. In addition, you’re able to choose how reflective you want your roof to be, which will have an effect on your power bill and the general temperature of your home (in collaboration with your insulation of course).
